Re: night shot

Channel overlays are the way to go usually because a lot of information is stored in the red, green, and blue channels that might just be perfect for brightening or darkening an image. I used the red channel with a linear dodge and then again with the cleanest brightest channel that combination produced and used it to brighten it up just a little more and thus preserved the natural color of the picture and everything worth seeing it there. Channels are awesome.

Re: night shot

Hi Dimmi,

Just another version... I kinda liked the warm tones for this one.

Re: night shot

Thanks, Dave! I just finished a huge batch of dark photos so this one felt familiar to me.

Re: night shot

Great work Beth, but I like the original very much.
I feel like the climate is lost in this brightness … but this is only MHO.

Re: night shot

I agree. After taking in everybody's advise and effort (much appreciated) I think that sharpening just a tad and making the sign just visible will do the trick. The "feel" of the photo is lost when it gets too bright. I will post my "fixed" photo tomorrow. I am looking forward to your comments.

Re: night shot

Thanks, Chillin..... I like the look of the original, too.... but, I confess, I'm a wimp when it comes to night shots with warm tones....... I should check in to some sort of rehab.... hehehe
